Today, I pulled this piece of fabric out of my stash. . .it has been there a couple of years. It was basically a souvenir from my only trip to the Original Sewing and Quilting Expo in Atlanta, and I kept waiting for the perfect project to come up. This month's challenge is to sew a new pattern, so I paired it with the Otto pattern and off I went.
Some of the details are hidden in the print. . . including the gathering stitches that I still need to remove.
This kind of collar finish is new to me, and I really like the results. I opted for white snaps instead of buttons.
Allie says she likes it, but she hasn't agreed to try it on for me yet. Such is life with an almost 7-year-old fashionista! I think it will look great with a white skirt or capris.
